people that we could possibly have in the united states of america, old folks whose cost of living is going up, whose health care have increased, and now we have a formula that was original designed to find out what was the cost of living so that the social security check will be able to be increased to meet the cost of living. now we're doing it backwards. we find out how much money we want to save. incidentally social security was never supposed to be involved in this procedure. how much money do we want to save, and then we say we'll get a formula, and the formula will save us that much money over ten years. it's just not fair to do this to old folks, most of whom are dependant on their checks completely or in part. >> congressman, why should social security not be part of it? people aren't stupid. we all know what the three major drivers of our debt are, medicare, medicaid, social security. social security hasn't been changed. all that's been changed is they changed the eligibility age and that's about it. >> the only reason that it is not supposed to be a part of this because
